    There's a huge back order (over a year) on the GI, so it's been removed for the time being.

    Why else would Springfield stop selling the GI?

    Correct,.......they are saying once the backorders are nearly caught up,
    it will return to the line-up. Estimate is 14 months.

    Weird. They could just say that it's on backorder on the website. Taking the model off would indicate that it's been cancelled.

    That's what I had thought as well,.....until I called Springfield.
    I'm still going to snatch the first parked GI I can find.
